10. YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS

If you wish to unsubscribe from e.g. newsletters or marketing emails you will be able to do so via the link provided in those emails. If you wish to delete cookies placed, our cookie policy will help show you how to do that. Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. Rascal and Friends complies with the rights given to EU Citizens under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Californian Citizens under California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA). These rights are as follows:

Request disclosure of your personal information or access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive additional details or a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. The file containing your personal information will be kept on our servers and those of our service providers.

This right is subject to certain exceptions (see below) allowed by law.

Exceptions

Your right to access your personal information is not absolute. In some circumstances, the law permits us to refuse your request to provide you with access to your personal information. Such circumstances may include where:

  • access would pose a serious threat to the life or health of any individual;

  • access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others;

  • the request is frivolous;

  • the information relates to a commercially-sensitive decision-making process;

  • access would be unlawful; or

  • access may prejudice enforcement activities, a security function or commercial negotiations.

 

Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

 

Request deletion or erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Right of data portability. We will provide to you or a third party you have chosen your personal data in a readily usable format or in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right is to in response to a request for disclosure or only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

 

Do not track right. California law requires us to let you know how we respond to web browser Do Not Track (DNT) signals. Because there currently isn’t an industry or legal standard for recognizing or honoring DNT signals. We don’t respond to them at this time. We wait the result of work by the privacy community and industry to determine when such a response is appropriate and what form is should take. If you turn on Do Not Track in your website browser, we will respect your choice.

 

We don’t have any automated processing including profiling. If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, or you have any complaint about our processing of your personal data, please see Contact Us. To check and confirm you are the right data subject, please provide us with your name and email address when you email us.
